About me

Your event is not about me. It's about you, your story and your end goal.

 

Whether you're looking to plan a virtual or in-person conference, convention, AGM, fundraiser, campaign, high-profile meeting or press conference, you need an event designer and producer that will not only plan the "show" but also protect your reputation and showcase your organization in the best possible light. 

 

This is achieved by planning a great program that captures and maintains your audience's interest and attention, finds the right balance of engagement and interactivity, and is executed to perfection, delivering on your goals.

 

That's what I do.

I am delighted to recommend the services of Vida Brodie with whom I recently had the opportunity to work on several high profile political events. Despite many uncontrollable external factors, including sudden changes in venue capacity, she excelled at strategic and logistical planning, as well as the execution of complex, multi-faceted, high-stakes events that took place under the microscope of the media.

I have known and worked with Vida since I was first elected to Parliament in 2004. She is calm under pressure, creative, organized and a decisive problem-solver. When the way of doing business shifted with the pandemic in 2020, Vida pivoted successfully to virtual event production and pulled off hosting the first-ever virtual Conservative Party of Canada convention.

I have worked with Vida through numerous National Conventions and leadership races, which included multiple debates and election events.  The most recent events took place during the Covid Pandemic. Vida naturally transitioned to virtual production with flawless execution of these events.  She provides calm, effective leadership, often under intense pressure and works very well with both organizers and performing talent which always results in a smooth production.

I work directly with my clients every step of the way, from goal setting to creating an event that tells a story. It’s my job to produce flawless, meaningful, and interactive experiences that engage the host and the audience, whether it’s in-person or online.

Media Events

If your event is intended solely for media or if you desire media attend your event, you need to set them up for success, and showcase your event in the best possible light. That requires working with production teams to provide optimal lighting, usable work space, and easy access to the event space, so they can do their jobs. I have 20 years of experience working with national and local media organizations. I know what they need.

 
 

Now, more than ever, event speakers must be engaging and interact with your audience, especially in the virtual world. Speakers must understand the platform technology and run of show, have a proper backdrop, microphone and audio, and know what to do if something goes wrong. I set speakers up for success through detailed training and rehearsals so your event can triumph.
